Hervé Picton received his PhD in English from the University of Paris X, and currently teaches British Studies as Professeur agrégé at the University of Compiègne, France.
Hervé's research focuses on Victorian religious and intellectual history, and he has published numerous articles, in both French and English, on Anthony Trollope, William Morris, and R. H. Froude, as well as, more generally, issues concerning the Church.
His books include Histoire de l’Église d’Angleterre (2006), A Handbook of British Civilization (2008) and Trollope and the Church: a Reassessment (2013).
He received the prestigious Ordre des Palmes Académiques, an award that recognises service to French education and active contribution to the prestige of French culture, from the French government in 2014.
Hervé’s title A Short History of the Church of England: From the Reformation to the Present Day is his first publication with Cambridge Scholars, and, after publishing with us once, he is eager to return in the future:
“My publishing experience with Cambridge Scholars has been more than positive. I elected to work with Cambridge Scholars because some colleagues in my field had published with them and the result seemed of a high standard. I had previously worked with other publishing houses before, and I can say that not only are the Cambridge Scholars team extremely reliable, competent and responsive, but they are also very friendly and pleasant to work with – the perfect mix in other words! I appreciated their professionalism, and I must say that the finished book far exceeded my expectations. I would definitely recommend Cambridge Scholars to any colleague in search of a publisher, and they will be my first choice again whenever I publish a book in the future.”
